    An incredibly romantic setting in the heart of downtown Norfolk! Cuisine was impeccable from start to finish! Our server, Denis, was fantastic! I started with a classic martini and was absolutely elated to see Boodles Gin on the menu selection...it was perfect, with olives served on the side! The oysters were as fresh and delicious as you could possibly expect! The foie gras and escargot were both excellent! I paired my ribeye with a bottle of Justin winery's cabernet sauvignon from Paso Robles, CA that was absolutely sublime! I finished with the chocolate sin cake and a French press!

    The Byrd and Baldwin experience was something that I had heard about and finally got to experience it with my wife on our anniversary. It was such a beautiful and eloquent restaurant. The staff was so professional and treated us so kindly. The food was excellent and I can hardly wait to return there again soon. The best upscale restaurant I've ever dined at. We enjoyed every minute of it.

    Came here for a birthday dinner. This place never disappoints!! We sat in the manager's booth and on the table was a birthday note signed by all the staff. Our server was Emanual (Eman) who was fantastic! Not too intrusive, yet very responsive to our dining needs. He made some great recommendations which resulted in us getting the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella appetizer. This had amazing flavors and so thankful he recommended it. Our filets were cooked to perfection, and we also got the asparagus, brocolli and mac n cheese shareable sides. For dessert we ordered the cheesecake. Their cheesecake isn't super dense amd heavy. It's very light and delicious.

    Byrd and Baldwin Bros Steakhouse is a class act. Fabulous service and atmosphere. Delicious food . Be prepared; it is pricey . Dinner for four , no alcoholic drinks , and shared dessert was $300.00 . Family style a la carte sides might help keep the cost down. The price is worth a special night out filled with a classy atmosphere, fabulous service and delicious food.

    This was our second visit to Byrd & Baldwin and it was as impressive as the first! Absolutely everyone, from the time we walked in the door until we left, was incredible. The exquisite building, the politeness and attentiveness of the staff, the food.....everything was the best imaginable. I cannot wait to return!

    We came to celebrate Father’s Day. My date ordered a Porterhouse Steak, Lobster, and a baked potato. After taking our order the waiter came back and informed us that they had sold out of the Porterhouse steak..so we chose a different steak. About 10 mins later the waiter returned and said they had sold out of the baked potato and asked us to choose another side. Fast forward to us receiving our food…the lobster didn’t come out until 15-20 minutes later. The waiter said it wasn’t cooked properly the first time. We did not make a fuss but overall we were not pleased with our experience. I understand things happen but this was excessive. With the price point of this restaurant, we expected better service.

    Me and my husband attended for our anniversary. It was a beautiful environment, quiet, inmate, service was excellent, and just a great time overall. This is a fine diner so it is pricey but the food and service match the experience. This is definitely a spot to go to if you want to "treat yourself."

    The service and food was delicious, I ordered the Aged Ribeye Steak rare and it was a little over cooked. I talked with the waiter and without hesitation he fixed my order. When my steak was brought out to me it was cooked properly and it was delicious. For desert my husband had the cheesecake, I had the cream brûlée and an expresso martini. All were beyond what I had expected, definitely save room for desert.

    We celebrated my husband's 67th birthday at Byrd and Baldwin. It was our first time eating there, and I found it by searching on line. The reviews were very favorable and it was within walking distance to the Wells Theatre where we had tickets for a 7:30 performance. Our server was very gracious; not overbearing, but detailed in describing the menu options. He was prompt in exchanging plates and flatware for the next course. His recommendations were right on par with what we expected. He showed me where the Ladies' Room was. We has such large portions that we had one boxed to take home that we couldn't eat. Dessart was delicious. We split a Key Lime Pie. Upon leaving we were asked if we had valet parking, but we were walking to the Wells. In all, it was superb!
